Edinburgh Gin has released a new gin liqueur flavour for 2016 – Plum & Madagascan Vanilla – believed to be the first of its kind available in the UK.

It is made with the natural flavours of juicy Scottish plums and Madagascan vanilla and follows the success of the company’s other fruit gin liqueurs, Raspberry, Elderflower and Rhubarb & Ginger.

Alex and Jane Nicol, co-founders of Edinburgh Gin, originally thought of the new recipe while picking plums at their home in Scotland. Only 12,000 bottles of the limited edition are available.

With ABV of ABV 20%, the new liqueur is recommended as a base for cocktails over autumn and winter, including twists on classics such as a Plum Negroni, a Kir Royale or a Plum Collins.

Alex said: “Plum & Madagascan Vanilla perfectly complements our range of popular gin-based fruit liqueurs, and we are delighted to add Plum & Vanilla to the family.

“Made with Scottish plums and vanilla from Madagascar, this new recipe has been devised from quality ingredients, producing an opulent and indulgent fruit liqueur, great for cocktails, after-dinner drinks and desserts.

“As the UK’s first plum and vanilla gin liqueur on the market, Edinburgh Gin is continuing to craft the gin renaissance and be at the forefront of gin-making in the UK.”
